Description
On May 12th and 13th 2021, the Climate Investment Funds (CIF) is hosting the virtual event "Keeping the Power On: Sparking Energy Storage Solutions in Developing Countries". This event will bring together Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs), policymakers, technologists, investors, project implementors, and development professionals to dive into the challenges and opportunities of deploying large-scale energy storage projects across a range of technologies in the developing world.

At this event, you will hear:

  • The critical role of concessional financing in supporting early-stage energy storage operations.
  • How energy storage catalyzes clean energy adoption and accelerates deep decarbonization.
  • How various energy storage solutions can meet a range of energy needs in developing countries.
  • How people on the front lines of finance, policy, and technology are overcoming barriers to unlock the value of energy storage.

You will learn about how energy storage is already being deployed around the world and lessons and opportunities will be shared for scaling up investments and impact through enhanced partnerships and in-country engagements.

You will join a learning network of global energy storage professionals working to harness the power of energy storage through technology innovation, finance, and policy.

This event is a component of a new global network and community of practice associated with the CIF’s Global Energy Storage Program (GESP). GESP bridges technology, financing, and policy gaps to develop new storage capacity, accelerate cost reduction, support integration of variable renewable energy into grids, and expand energy access for millions of people in developing countries.
